About Us

The Caring and Sharing Exchange is a local charity that provides assistance to Ottawa families and individuals in need, during the Christmas season and the back-to-school season.
The backbone of Caring & Sharing is our Co-ordination Service, which organizes the even distribution of school essentials and Christmas assistance so that every donor dollar can reach even more people in need.
